Evaluation the Weekly Intake of Some Wild Edible Indigenous Mushrooms Collected in Different Regions in Tunceli, Turkey.Biol Trace Elem Res. 2020 May; 195(1):239-249.BT
The quantity of some essential and non-essential elements of wild edible mushroom samples collected from Tunceli Province of Turkey was determined by using flame and electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometer after microwave digestion. The method accuracy was corrected using standard reference material (NIST SRM 1547-Peach Leaves). The essential element concentrations of analyzed mushroom samples were determined in the range of 0.036-0.563 mg kg[-1] for calcium, 1.28-2.55 mg kg[-1] for magnesium, 0.054-0.188 mg kg[-1] for sodium, 1.00-4.57 mg kg[-1] for copper, 212-480 mg kg[-1] for iron, and 75-151 mg kg[-1] for zinc but cobalt and chromium were not detected. Based on results, there were statistically significant differences between the element contents of analyzed mushroom species. Consequently, according to this study results, the weekly intake and target hazard quotient values of the elements show that the consumption of these mushrooms does not threaten human health.
